Subject Re: Converting docs to html and pdf without the site shell
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2003 19:54:23 GMT

I understood what he said, but I had already found
that solution before he posted. The other xsls were
necessary because I was using a skin that was already
made and it referenced parts of common xsls. 
It worked. In the future I'll look into the pure
forrest solution. 

cheers, 

Jay
